Personally i'm a die-hard yankee fan but i really dont have anything against boston, they actually seem like really nice guys, however what i don't like are whiney red sox fans who can't take the fact that the yankees are a good group of ball players and just bitch and whine about everything
Well put. There are absolutely Sox fans that whine too much. Yankee fans on the other hand, often come across as arrogant. All the talk about the Sox never being able to win it can be extrememly annoying. If the Yanks win this year, I'll tip my cap to them. I just dont need someone telling me that the Sox wont win because they didnt win last year or in the past. Id much rather have a discussion with a Yankee fan about this years teams. If we lose, then we lose, but it certainly is not some sort of baseball destiny.
